Do you guys know how hard it is to find a vegan cupcake on the fly in this town? And I'm not talking about special ordering a dozen or waiting till the second Saturday of the fourth month or going to Sprinkles -- I'm talking about purchasing one cupcake of the vegan variety on a moment's notice for a birthday surprise for your vegan friend or for yourself (or for a battle).
It's a challenge.
After calling countless bakeries, one of which wasn't even quite sure what "vegan" meant and told me that making cupcakes without eggs was "way too difficult," I was finally able to find two places that sold these elusive vegan treats.
And for the record -- vegan means no meat, no dairy, no eggs, no animal products whatsoever, and a cupcake is a small or individual cake.
